    Faye Dunaway in a feathery coat; Richard Burton clutching Elizabeth Taylor; Lauren Bacall raising a glass. These are just three of the indelible images included in Opening Night, a new book of photographs by Elliott Landy. Best known for photographing musicians — Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin — Landy spent part of 1968 photographing celebrities at posh happenings in New York City. The result of that flirtation with Hollywood make up this 68-page volume.

    “My pictures reflected the aspects of those events that impacted me the most — the falseness and superficiality,” Landy writes in the introduction. “They were a reflection of my inner feelings toward what was happening — a flow of energy, channeled and filtered through my own person.”
